I like the idea.

It would lower the barrier to begin coding on the hurd (I think), and it would 
be a good opportunity to clean up the cvs chaos a bit (so newcomers don't get 
completely lost in the different repositories). 

Also it has the advantage to remove the central point of failure, which feels 
very Hurd-like to me: Everyone has a full copy of the repository, and only 
the reference repository is under central control. 

But I don't code, so I don't think it's my place to decide, and the wiki 
already uses git anyway (even though I prefer Mercurial myself, since it 
feels more natural to me and doesn't have to be cleaned up regularly - and it 
works in my Hurd installation :) ). 

Best wishes,
